Anna Platten: Paintings and studies 1982 – 1992
30 July – 29 August 1992
This exhibition presents a survey of paintings and studies by Adelaide artist Anna Platten, selected from her work of the past ten years. Platten is a graduate of the South Australian School of Art and in 1987 was awarded the inaugural South Australian School of Art Chanter Bequest, enabling her to travel to Europe to view and experience the old masters who have been influential in her work.
Platten has a passionate commitment to the expression and communication of her feelings, rendered through narrative paintings, objectively constructed in a traditional manner, and rich in sensuality and symbolic detail.
The exhibition reflects the University of South Australia Art Museum’s interest to periodically draw attention to the achievement of an Adelaide artist, by examining their work in relative depth at an appropriate time in their career.
